Every year, the Wondershop publishes a set of articles aimed at helping you find the perfect gift for the science enthusiast in your life. We call it Giving the Gift of Wonder. This year, we've got a very special list of great gifts ideas meant to inspire curiosity and imagination. Some are for children. Some are for adults. Some are for kids of all ages! Chances are that you'll be able to check a few names off your list with some of the ideas you find here. And as usual, we hope that you will take time this holiday season to enjoy the wonders of science!
A few years ago, the Science Wondershop included a very special gift for the cubicle warrior; The Airzooka. Since then, the folks over at Airzooka Toys have been working on a few upgrades. This year, we are pleased to announce the launch of the Laser Airzooka. You read it right! For that special someone who is looking for a little more accuracy when attempting to smack someone in the kisser with ball of air, this just may be the perfect gift idea.
The Laser Airzooka is a "fun gun" that blasts a harmless ball of air up to 6 meters (20 ft), while unsuspecting victims wonder why their hair is messed up or the papers on their desk scattered! The Laser Airzooka operates simply by pulling and releasing a built-in elastic air launcher. And here's the best part: because it shoots air, you'll never run out of ammo (unless you happen to be on the moon!). Of course, the addition of the a laser only makes this "toy" a lot more fun to own. Learn all about the science of force and motion while you play tricks on your family and friends. Of course, if you decide to give one of these as a gift, you should be prepared to serve as viable target.
The Airzooka is recommended for children ages 6 and up.
